Corruption.

Eagerness overcomes you,

Opportunities entice you,

Hidden rewards corrupt you,

Your stubbornness gives way.

 

Waiting for another,

To come and replace.

It's all they desire,

There is no disgrace.

 

Threats subscribe you,

Power destroys you,

Actions describe you,

And there's none of you left.

 

The urge to rule,

Rules all.

Corruption steals us,

And we will fall.

The End
